The worst drivers I've seen, surprisingly, were in Fargo, North Dakota, where there isn't much traffic to have to deal with at all. I saw a number of people that would stop at the end of an interstate on ramp and try to merge onto the interstate from a stand still. Have never seen this anywhere else.

I have encountered bad drivers in nearly every city I have been to, but as far as overall aggressive drivers are concerned the Washington DC area could easily be the top contender for this.

Good drivers drive good, doesn't matter where they are from?

Yea but its still tied to regions. Its not coincidence that Boston or Miami or New Orleans have bad drivers. Different areas have different habits. If one bad driver teaches someone to drive, that person is likely to pick up those driving habits PLUS if other people drive a certain way in your city you're more likely to drive like them. People pick up driving habits as they learn, based on other people's habits. Kind of like an accent. You say words similar to your peers, you're likely to drive like your peers. And if you rarely get out of your city or state, you're less likely to see how other people drive so you're less likely to even know how bad you drive.

I totally agree with this, and would throw in San Diego & Seattle as well.

I would rather drive the freeways of any of them versus here in Atlanta, which resembles Deathrace 2017 more often than not now.

No, I've never heard that.
This. And every city I've been in, "shuts down with 2 inches of snow and its citizens can't drive in the snow."

Same thing happened here in Indy last month. 72 one day, snowing the next. SMH
